Hacked files of the Climatic Research Unit, Global Warming a deliberate
Global Warming is often called a hoax. I disagree because a hoax has a
humorous intent to puncture pomposity. In science, such as with the
Piltdown Man hoax, it was done to expose those with fervent but blind
belief. The argument that global warming is due to humans, known as the
anthropogenic global warming theory (AGW) is a deliberate fraud. I can
now make that statement without fear of contradiction because of a
remarkable hacking of files that provided not just a smoking gun, but
an entire battery of machine guns.
Someone hacked in to the files of the Climatic Research Unit (CRU)
based at the University of East Anglia. A very large file (61 mb) was
downloaded and posted to the web. Phil Jones Director of the CRU has
acknowledged the files are theirs. They contain papers, documents
letters and emails. The latter are the most damaging and contain blunt
information about the degree of manipulation of climate science in
general and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in
Climate science hijacked and corrupted by this small group of scientists
Dominant names involved are ones I have followed throughout my career
including, Phil Jones, Benjamin Santer, Michael Mann, Kevin Trenberth,
Jonathan Overpeck, Ken Briffa and Tom Wigley. I have watched climate
science hijacked and corrupted by this small group of scientists. This
small, elite, community was named by Professor Wegman in his report to
the National Academy of Science (NAS).
I had the pleasure of meeting the founder of CRU Professor Hubert Lamb,
considered the Father of Modern Climatology, on a couple of occasions.
He also peer reviewed one of my early publications. I know he would be
mortified with what was disclosed in the last couple of days.
Jones claims the files were obtained illegally as if that absolves the
content. It doesn’t and it is enough to destroy all their careers.
Jones gave a foretaste of his behavior in 2005. Warwick Hughes asked
for the data and method he used for his claim of a 0.6°C temperature
rise since the end of the nineteenth century. Jones responded, “We have
25 years or so invested in the work. Why should I make the data
available to you when your aim is to try and find something wrong with
it?” He has stonewalled ever since. The main reason was because it was
used as a key argument in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) Reports to convince the world humans caused rapid warming in the
20th century. The emails obtained are a frightening record of
arrogance, and deception far beyond his 2005 effort.
Another glimpse into what the files and emails reveal was the report by
Professor Deming. He wrote, “ With publication of an article in Science
(in 1995) I gained sufficient credibility in the community of
scientists working on climate change. They thought I was one of them
someone who would pervert science in the service of social and
political causes. So one of them let his guard down. A major person
working in the area of climate change and global warming sent me an
astonishing email that said. “We must get rid of the Medieval Warm
Period.” The person in question was Jonathan Overpeck and his even
more revealing emails are part of those exposed by the hacker. It is
now very clear that Deming’s charge was precise. They have perverted
science in the service of social and political causes.
Professor Wegman showed how this “community of scientists” published
together and peer reviewed each other’s work. I was always suspicious
about why peer review was such a big deal. Now all my suspicions are
confirmed. The emails reveal how they controlled the process, including
manipulating some of the major journals like Science and Nature. We
know the editor of the Journal of Climate, Andrew Weaver, was one of
the “community”. They organized lists of reviewers when required making
sure they gave the editor only favorable names. They threatened to
isolate and marginalize one editor who they believed was recalcitrant.
These people controlled the global weather data
used by the IPCC
used by the IPCC
through the joint Hadley and CRU and produced the HadCRUT data. They
controlled the IPCC, especially crucial chapters and especially
preparation of the Summary for PolicyMakers (SPM). Stephen Schneider
was a prime mover there from the earliest reports to the most
influential in 2001. They also had a left wing conduit to the New York
Times. The emails between Andy Revkin and the community are very
revealing and must place his journalistic integrity in serious
jeopardy. Of course the IPCC Reports and especially the SPM Reports are
the basis for Kyoto and the Copenhagen Accord, but now we know they are
based on completely falsified and manipulated data and science. It is
no longer a suspicion. Surely this is the death knell for the CRU, the
IPCC, Kyoto and Copenhagen and the Carbon Credits shell game.
CO2 never was a problem and all the machinations and deceptions exposed
by these files prove that it was the greatest deception in history, but
nobody is laughing. It is a very sad day for science and especially my
chosen area of climate science. As I expected now it is all exposed I
find there is no pleasure in “I told you so.” You can download the

LORD LAWSON CALLS FOR
INTO CRU DATA AFFAIR
The Global Warming Policy Foundation, 23 November 2009
In response to recent revelations contained in leaked e-mails originating from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, Lord Lawson, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the GWPF, has called for a rigorous and independent inquiry into the matter. While reserving judgment on the contents of the e-mails, Lord Lawson said these are very serious issues and allegations that reach to the heart of scientific integrity and credibility:
"Astonishingly, what appears, at least at first blush, to have emerged is that
(b) they have consistently refused outsiders access to the raw data;
(c) the scientists have been trying to avoid freedom of information requests; and
(d) they have been discussing ways to prevent papers by dissenting scientists being published in learned journals."
"There may be a perfectly innocent explanation. But what is clear is that the integrity of the scientific evidence on which not merely the British Government, but other countries, too, through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, claim to base far-reaching and hugely expensive policy decisions, has been called into question. And the reputation of British science has been seriously tarnished. A high-level independent inquiry must be set up without delay."
Lord Lawson added:
"Since the CRU is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and is part of the University of East Anglia, we should call on Edmund Wallis, the chairman of the NERC and Brandon Gough, the Chancellor of the UEA, to jointly commission an independent inquiry into the revelations, including, of course, their veracity."
Professsor David Henderson, the Chairman of the Academic Advisory Council
"The evolution of climate policies needs to be linked to a process of inquiry, review and advice that is more open, thorough, balanced and objective than is now the case. This is the mission of the Global Warming Policy Foundation."
GWPF LAUNCHED TODAY
The Global Warming Policy Foundation, 23 November 2009
Speaking at the launch of the GWPF in the House of Lords today, Lord Lawson introduced the new think tank:
"Last year I brought out a book on global warming which (rather to my surprise) generated an enormous feedback, almost all of it positive. A number of those who wrote to me, who included scientists, engineers and others with an experienced background, urged me not to leave the matter there but to follow it up in some way. It was this that led me to found the think-tank we are launching today, which can achieve far more than I could on my own."
"I am most grateful both to all those who have agreed to join it as Trustees and to those who have provided the funds to enable it to get off the ground. My hope is that the birth of the Foundation may mark a turning-point in the political and public debate on the important issue of global warming policy."
The Global Warming Policy Foundation is unique. We are an all-party and non-party think-tank and a registered educational charity which, while open-minded on the contested science of global warming, is deeply concerned about the costs and other implications of many of the policies currently being advocated. On the eve of the UN climate change conference at Copenhagen, designed to secure agreement on such policies, this has become particularly timely.
Through our website
The Foundation is headed by its Director, Dr Benny Peiser, who founded (in 1997) and continues to edit the world's leading climate policy network. It is governed by a distinguished Board of Trustees, comprising members of all three main political parties and none, with great experience in a number of different walks of life. It is advised by an Academic Advisory Council, comprised chiefly of eminent scientists and economists with a wide range of views. It is funded entirely by voluntary donations from a number of private individuals and charitable trusts. In order to make clear its complete independence, it does not accept gifts from either energy companies or anyone with a significant interest in an energy company.
Benny Peiser said: "The Foundation's aim is to become the most trustworthy and readily accessible source for those, whether in politics, the media or among the wider public, who wish to be informed of the most reliable and authoritative analysis of both the claims of climate alarmists and the policies currently in place or being discussed, whether in Copenhagen or elsewhere."

‘The arrogance and hubris of corrupt politicians
will be responsible for every drop of blood spilt
in the Wars of Disassociation, if Britain does not
leave the EU.
The ugly, centralised, undemocratic supra national policies being imposed by the centralised and largely unelected decisionmakers of The EU for alien aims, ailien values and to suit alien needs stand every possibility of creating 200,000,000 deaths across EUrope as a result of the blind arrogance and hubris of the idiologues in the central dictatorship, and their economic illiteracy marching hand in glove with the idiocy of The CAP & The CFP - both policies which deliver bills, destroy lives and denude food stocks.
The EU, due to the political idiocy and corruption of its undemocratic leaders, is now a net importer of food, no longer able to feed itself and with a decreasing range of over priced goods of little use to the rest of the world to sell with which to counter the net financial drain of endless imports.
British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit
of their own agenda and greed, have done more
damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy
of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.
The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain
into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own
personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain
more than the armies of Hitler
and the Franco - German - Italian axis of 1939 - 1945.
